The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Isaiah 60:19
This verse is part of another chapter of prophesy, but it speaks strongly to me that our total trust should be in God. He is our light. Even in our darkest hour, we can turn to God, and His love will light our way.
The phrase, “It’s always darkest before the dawn,” comes to mind. I have always been fascinated by that saying, and being an early riser, I’ve often seen darkness succumb to the light of a new day. It is an awesome sight, and the rising sun of a new day has a way of filling me with hope and causing me to be excited about what lies ahead.
But what about those cloudy mornings; or even those stormy mornings, when we can’t see the sun come up? Where is that brilliant ball of fire that lights our days and fills us with the hope and promise of a new day? It’s still there. It may be behind the clouds, and while the storm rages, we may wonder if we will ever see it again, but you can bet your bippy it’s still there.
God is like that morning sun. He is always there. Even when our hour is dark, or when the storms of this life are raging, he’s still there. His light is still shining. If we love God and know He is always there—even in the darkest of night—we can calmly face the horizons of the unknown, our hand in His, His light guiding our way.
